The action begins onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the “Queen Zenobia”, where horrors lurk around every corner before players head for the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available, the race is on to survive the horror of Resident Evil Revelations.

Resident Evil Revelations is set to take advantage of Capcom’s online service – – with content available to users once the game launches. Players can pre-register on the service from January 24 onwards to gain early access to Resident Evil Revelations themed content with further information about online events to be revealed closer to launch.

Back in February, Capcom had released a trailer that showed the character Hunk as he kills what the game calls “the ooze” in Raid Mode. Raid Mode is where players fight through hordes of zombies in isolated challenge maps. It follows a score-attack format and grades players on their performance. Enemies also have unique properties, such as being small, swift or extremely durable. Raid Mode can be played in co-op.
